Day two on my quest, yet another frustrating day. I didn’t really get any sleep and I woke up early. Finally finished the book I was reading. It was really good by the way (La’s Orchestra Saves The World by Alexander McCall Smith). Anyway, after I finished reading, I opened up a blank canvas on photoshop and did not have a clue what to do. I had this new font I wanted to use called Knewave I got from The League of Movable type (Cuz I’m like, obsessed with typography) BUT I had to stop myself, obviously, because design is more than just typography, and I’m yet to discipline myself enough to not fill everything I do with meaningless words just so I can use the fonts. They look nice, but they’re not amazing. I started trying some abstract stuff with a bunch of different brushes, but that was a mess. I settled on a gif, and I must say, music helps a lot. It helps me to just tune everything out and focus (which you know is a real task for me) and everything just flows. Too bad it doesn’t help in the creative process..ideas are still coming slower than they leave me and I’m just never satisfied because nothing I do looks..amazing. A lot of the time, I find myself liking an idea but not knowing how to execute it, but I know there’s so much more I can do. Anyway, I love music, so this piece is centered around that theme. Gonna post it next, see ya!
